2012 in the national nine ministries and commissions to reverse the development of lead-acid battery industry background, the development of lithium-ion battery significantly improved, the industry believes that lithium-ion battery instead of lead-acid and nickel-metal hydride batteries is an inevitable trend. With the price continued to decline, lithium-ion battery to replace lead-acid batteries and nickel-metal hydride battery speed is accelerating.
Lithium-ion battery current in the field of power tools penetration rate of about 70%, followed by the replacement of the field are electric bicycle batteries, UPS, electric vehicles and power storage.
According to the data show that lithium battery in the electric bicycle market penetration rate of about 2.5% in 2011, in the price drop and lead-acid battery industry consolidation in the context of lithium-ion battery price advantage will become increasingly obvious, the penetration rate will appear quickly increase.
Specifically, the first half of last year, a group of bike lithium price of 1,200 yuan to 2,000 yuan, while the current lithium is only 800 yuan to 1,200 yuan. Bicycle lead acid battery current price of 400 yuan to 600 yuan, the price advantage continues to decline.
It is predicted that by 2015, lithium-ion battery in the field of electric bicycle penetration will reach 20% to 30%, the formation of 60 billion -90 billion market size, the entire lithium-ion battery market to enhance the scale of more than 15%.
